The obedience of Jesus to the commandment given mankind that the earth be overspread by holiness, rather than sin is considered, today. Also, there is more on time before the sun. The “Yahoo!

Why didn’t the Christ Jesus obey God’s commandment given to us in Genesis 9:7?

God found a human mate worthy of giving birth of the Christ Jesus. Surely Jesus could have found a mate worthy of his holy seed, no?

God says in Genesis 38:9-10 that wasting thy seed upon the ground is wicked in the sight of the Lord. So why didn’t the Christ Jesus pick a wife and make babies?

Please do not say “because our salvation was more important.” If Jesus was half man or all man then he should do as men are commanded, no? Besides making a baby or two or three wouldn’t stop him from sacrificing himself.

Let’s face it, the only reason Jesus didn’t make any babies is because the people who concocted the story didn’t think it would benefit their cause, yes?


THE BATTLE AXE: Time Before the Sun? (04/14/2013)—(6) Ideas declaring that human life and reality depend upon the sun, the moon, or the stars come in many forms, and are rightly called “idol worship” and “idolatry”. It is a noxious truth, that there are those in the earth who deny the King of Glory. Why? Because they can tell whenever the sun is shining. See Deuteronomy 4: 15-20, Job 31: 26-28 and John 1: 1-14, KJV. (7) While existence of the sun and moon are described in an account of Creation, the divinely provided lights pertain to the proclamation of Divine name, the revelation of GOD, and that GOD is known as sovereign above all that is. As features of the natural world, the sun and moon are not eternal or permanent; yet, their status as both “universal” in human experience, and beyond human ability to alter or change them, fit the sun and moon to be used illustrating the righteousness of GOD in covenant. More than this, the supremacy of GOD is further established in the removal of sun and moon. See Joshua 10: 12-14, Jeremiah 31: 31-37, Psalms 19: 1-7 and Isaiah 24: 17-23, KJV. (8) The Advent of Christ is also signaled in natural events. Consider again, the instruction from Jesus (Matthew 24: 27-31, KJV).

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. (Luke 17: 7-10, King James Version)

Dear “?”, the obedience of Jesus to commands that the earth be nourished and replenished are to be seen and understood as accomplished “in spirit,” rather than “flesh and bone.” Where men and women become perfected (i.e., mature), they correctly understand that GOD is a spirit, and we must acknowledge and worship GOD in spirit and in truth, not merely through our senses, physical matter and social being. Dutiful obedience has a peculiar place, where initiative, love (unselfish desire to benefit), and genuine union in the Divine Person have a higher place.

The offspring of Jesus are those who, believing, submit to operations by the same Spirit of GOD that established the heavens and the earth at Creation. Human nature is transformed through baptism that is spiritual death, rebirth from divine substance (holy DNA, so to speak), and regeneration. Those born again, are also spoken of as adopted through the Holy Spirit.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, there may now be billions who have come to GOD through Jesus Christ. According to the holy writings, these include Abraham, Moses, David, and me.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
